“I loved every minute as head coach of the Houston Texans,” Culley said in a statement. […] I’m disappointed that we haven’t won more matches and won’t have the opportunity to improve with the lessons I’ve learned, but I fully understand that it’s a decision based on results and that I haven’t done enough. ”
Culley, 66, had to deal with some torment during his short stay. Quarterback Deshaun Watson found himself on the sidelines, having been at the heart of an investigation into sexual assault charges. Veteran JJ Watt has been released and changes have been made to the board of directors.
